The number of books will grow continually, and one can predict that a time will come when it will be almost as difficult to learn anything from books as from the direct study of the whole universe. It will be almost as convenient to search for some bit of truth concealed in nature as it will be to find it hidden away in an immense multitude of bound volumes.
Best Quotes about Education
Education... has produced a vast population able to read but unable to distinguish what is worth reading.
G. M. Trevelyan
The creative person is usually rebellious. He or she is the survivor of a trauma called education.
I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.
What does education often do? It makes a straight-cut ditch of a free, meandering brook.
Thoreau, Henry David
Education begins a gentleman, conversation completes him.
Dr. Thomas Fuller
The secret of all success is to know how to deny yourself. Prove that you can control yourself, and you are an educated man; and without this all other education is good for nothing.
R. D. Hitchcock
Education is a kind of continuing dialogue, and a dialogue assumes, in the nature of the case, different points of view.
The world is run by C students.
The difficulty is to try and teach the multitude that something can be true and untrue at the same time.
Whom do I call educated? First, those who manage well the circumstances they encounter day by day. Next, those who are decent and honorable in their intercourse with all men, bearing easily and good naturedly what is offensive in others and being as agreeable and reasonable to their associates as is humanly possible to be... those who hold their pleasures always under control and are not ultimately overcome by their misfortunes... those who are not spoiled by their successes, who do not desert their true selves but hold their ground steadfastly as wise and sober -- minded men.
The advantage of a classical education is that it enables you to despise the wealth that it prevents you from achieving.
The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future life.
Formal education is but an incident in the lifetime of an individual. Most of us who have given the subject any study have come to realize that education is a continuous process ending only when ambition comes to a halt.
Rees, R. I.
America believes in education: the average professor earns more money in a year than a professional athlete earns in a whole week.
Mistakes are a great educator when one is honest enough to admit them and willing to learn from them.
Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond; cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.
An education obtained with money is worse than no education at all
That's what college is for - getting as many bad decisions as possible out of the way before you're forced into the real world. I keep a checklist of'em on the wall in my room.
School is where you go between when your parents can't take you, and industry can't take you.
A well-informed mind is the best security against the contagion of folly and of vice. The vacant mind is ever on the watch for relief, and ready to plunge into error, to escape from the languor of idleness.
The principle goal of education is to create men who are capable of doing new things, not simply of repeating what other generations have done -- men who are creative, inventive and discoverers.
Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.
The best education in the world is that got by struggling to get a living.
Real education must ultimately be limited to men who insist on knowing. The rest is mere sheep-herding.
I just graduated and already I'm way behind.
You don't need fancy highbrow traditions or money to really learn. You just need people with the desire to better themselves.
Adam Cooper and Bill Collage
Soap and education are not as sudden as a massacre, but they are more deadly in the long run. Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond; cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.
There is hardly a pioneer's hut which does not contain a few odd volumes of Shakespeare. I remember reading the feudal drama of Henry V for the first time in a log cabin.
Tocqueville, Alexis De
Now, if the principle of toleration were once admitted into classical education --if it were admitted that the great object is to read and enjoy a language, and the stress of the teaching were placed on the few things absolutely essential to this result, if the tortoise were allowed time to creep, and the bird permitted to fly, and the fish to swim, towards the enchanted and divine sources of Helicon --all might in their own way arrive there, and rejoice in its flowers, its beauty, and its coolness.
Stowe, Harriet Beecher
She knows what is the best purpose of education: not to be frightened by the best but to treat it as part of daily life.
John Mason Brown
A liberally educated person meets new ideas with curiosity and fascination. An illiberally educated person meets new ideas with fear.
Stockdale, James B.
Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten.
B. F. Skinner
Let us describe the education of our men. What then is the education to be? Perhaps we could hardly find a better than that which the experience of the past has already discovered, which consists, I believe, in gymnastic, for the body, and music for the mind.
The most important part of education is proper training in the nursery.
The whole theory of modern education is radically unsound. Fortunately in England, at any rate, education produces no effect whatsoever. If it did, it would prove a serious danger to the upper classes, and probably lead to acts of violence.
A college degree is not a sign that one is a finished product but an indication a person is prepared for life.
Reverend Edward A. Malloy
Education is a weapon, whose effect depends on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.
The purpose of education is to keep a culture from being drowned in senseless repetitions, each of which claims to offer a new insight.
Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.
Every uneducated person is a caricature of himself.
It is only the ignorant who despise education.
Next in importance to freedom and justice is popular education, without which neither freedom nor justice can be permanently maintained.
James A. Garfield
The child who desires education will be bettered by it; the child who dislikes it disgraced.

Bachelor's degrees make pretty good placemats if you get'em laminated.
Education is a state-controlled manufactory of echoes.
Invest in yourself, in your education. There's nothing better.
An education isn't how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know. It's being able to differentiate between what you do know and what you don't.
